Where can I get this?

Wow! That sounds like an awesome recording, although I can’t find it anywhere. Does anybody know where I can find a copy? Thanks!

Hard to find

It’s unlikely you’ll pick these up, even off the web. I recorded Sraith1 and Sraith 2 off vinyl that my dad borrowed from the record library in Belfast. I was only about 15 at the time. maybe someone knows if they’ve been re-issued….?

Wrong titles….

"harry" who posted this recording has mis-read the titles for track 6. It’s not 3 reels, but only 2 - "The Glens Of Aherlow" and "Sean Ryan’s Favourite" are given as alternative titles for the same tune. The first reel is Sean Ryan’s "Dash To Portobello", and it’s followed by Brendan McGlinchey’s "Splendid Isolation".
